What you can buy for 50p in Bulgaria and around the world

The year has only just started. This raises a logical question – what can a tourist buy for 50p during their holiday journeys?

In Bulgaria you can choose between buying a coffee with milk, 100 grams of chocolate, or a kilo of sliced bread, a kilo of rice, 5 eggs, 2 kilos of potatoes, a banitsa and boza (typical Bulgarian pastry and a drink), two bottles of mineral water, a ticket for the public transport or a coupon for fake eyelash implants.

In Moscow you can  buy 400 grams of bread or a liter of milk… Or some canned vegetables. A packet of cigarettes, or a bottle of beer… A trip with the metro, or two newspapers.

In Ukraine 50p would be enough for a packet of butter, 6 tickets for the metro in Kiev, 10 eggs, or two liters of soda.

In Turkey 50p buys a ticket for the bus, or a liter of apple juice, half a kilo of bananas, two loaves of bread.

In Macedonia a man has to choose between the beer and snack, which is a task beyond one’s abilities.
